This review is from: Intel NUC Kit DC53427HYE 2 x 204Pin Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
Pros: Very quiet, compact, and fast.
Cons: - Doesn't include the needed power cord.
- Max memory is only 16GB, would be nice if it was 32GB for my usage.
Other Thoughts: I bought two of the i5 NUC's to be used in my VMware ESXi 5 home lab and they perform great. The only exception is that you need to load the correct NIC drivers into the esxi ISO file as the NIC drivers are not already included in ESXi 5.
N82E16820231582 - G.SKILL 16GB (2 x 8GB)
SanDisk Cruze Fit 8GB USB flash drive (install esxi on)
Very happy with the setup. Able to upgrade my home lab to something a bit more powerful while using very little power.
This review is from: EnGenius ESR750H Long Range 300+450Mbps Dual-Band Wireless-N Router
Pros: Dual Band, Removable antennas, Range was slightly further then my Linksys 4200
Cons: Support is HORRIBLE. Opened a ticket cause my WIRED devices would lose connection until I rebooted the device. After weeks of the ticket being open and long waits between communication EnGenius support finally came to the "genius" conclusion that I need to check my wireLESS adapters and drivers... Really?
When asked to clarify how one was related to the other, considering there was no mention about wireless devices having this issue let along even connected, support then claimed they have done their "due diligence" and I should return the router.
This review is from: Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD2 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Great price, stupid fast SSD, and reliable thus far.
Cons: Only had the drive for a week or two now, but so far no issues whatsoever.
Other Thoughts: I did upgrade to the latest firmware, and even that process went without any issues.READ FULL REVIEW
